When you're in front of your PC, waiting for something to transfer to removable media, that's when seconds feel like minutes, and minutes feel like hours. And data storage scenarios such as that one is where the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0's greatest impact will be felt first. As of CES, 17 SuperSpeed USB 3.0-certified products were introduced, including host controllers, adapter cards, motherboards, and hard drives (but no other consumer electronics devices). Still more uncertified USB 3.0 products are on the way, and they can't get here fast enough.

That chart will vary between different systems as well as the devices and drives plugged in. The impact that the new standard will have is going to big however.

The voltages with any usb bus are always low to start with. I doubt you would see any changes made there at least no more then a few millivolts at that even.

A new board with 3.0 will be going into two new builds scheduled! The present case will see a few drives moved into it while this will be set aside simply as a spare running Vista most likely. The two new ones however will see 7 HP on one and of course Ultimate here!

(gee what about all these 2.0 usb flash drives hanging around now? hhmmm.... )

You dog! You've got one.....

Bet you can't wait to get a new external and one of the SSDs that are bumping up against SATA2.

All the best with the system

USB 3.0 will crush eSATA, FireWire

by Alex Serpo

Intel demonstrated a working version of USB 3.0 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week. Here's why it will make eSATA and FireWire obsolete.

When USB 3.0 is expected to hit the market in early 2010, it will have been 10 years since the now ubiquitous USB 2.0 was introduced (April 2000). The current USB 2.0 specification runs at a theoretical maximum speed of 480Mbps, and can supply power (for those looking for the hard details, you can find the USB 2.0 specification here (zip file).
And more of that at USB 3.0 will crush eSATA, FireWire | Cutting Edge - CNET News

Put side by side with eSATA and FireWire 800, USB 3.0 is far superior. eSATA, an external connection that runs at the same speed as the internal SATA 1.0 bus, has a maximum theoretical of 3Gbps. This makes USB 3.0 faster than eSATA and about six times faster than FireWire 800 (full duplex at 800Mbps).
